Homicide and injury
Submitted By Lt. Roger Keener
Hayward Police responded to several 911 calls of shots being fired at the 100 block of Saint Andrews Street just before 8 a.m. on September 18, 2011. Medical assistance also arrived on the scene as one person was thought to have been shot.
On arrival, police found a 65-year old male Hayward resident had been shot on his driveway. The victim had several gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. His 59-year old wife had also been shot and was treated at a local hospital. Her injuries were serious but not life-threatening.
Police canvassed the neighborhood trying to catch the suspect(s) fleeing the area but the gunman/gunmen managed to escape before police arrived. There was nothing at the scene that could immediately identify the motive in this incident.
Investigators are attempting to identify and locate any witnesses, collecting evidence and trying to determine the motive for the attack. The names of the victims are being withheld for the time being.
Any information regarding this shooting should be directed to Inspector J.P. Guimareas at (510) 293-7080 or Inspector Mike Woods at (510) 293-7035.
